tivo + flac = good. tivo? & .shn?

Greetings,
Been using pyTivo for 6mos or so and it along with ffmpeg handle transcoding flac files nicely. Does anyone use any software to handle the .shn files in the same sort of manner?

Ya know. years worth of shorten files that i just can't really see a reason to ever uncompress these things again. Problems problems right.

btw anyone need some maxpoints?

peace,
-damian

...er um .. well i don't really know how to say this but. I'm also a linux hippie. can't deal with the .exe's anymo'.

and I'm not really sure... what ever that program is.... would help me.

I can play my flac files without ever decompressing them through the media server that connects to my tivo. I am hoping to be able to do this with all the shorten files I have as well.

just go ahead and convert them all with shntool? (penguin friendly)

shntool conv -o flac *.shn

Re: tivo + flac = good. tivo? & .shn?

Well that's probably the thing to do then.

Thank you randytravis.

Now what is exactly the nomenclature to be used to document this conversion in the lineage? ie .shn -> shntool -> flac? er ....

And also what is command do I run to generate the flac fingerprint files after the conversion?

.. etree site seems to be super laggy and I haven't come up with much other good info.

Thanks again!

Re: tivo + flac = good. tivo? & .shn?

Actually, the easiest way to do this on a Linux system is with the etree scripts (http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...group_id=60296). Use the "flacify" command to convert SHN to FLAC, add metatags (if the text file is in the right format - somewhat iffy in my experience), set replay gain (if you want) and generate an FFP file. The only problems I've had is the text file formatting to create megatags can be a pain and it renames the directory to <old directory name>.FLAC16 even if the source files are 24 bit (not an issue when dealing with SHN files, obviously).
